welcome! There are so many thing I love about your car! For one, the Nardi Blackline is my all time favorite steering wheel, bar none. I am also really digging the no center counsel look, something I may have to look into.

Very cool! As Tony mentioned, I like the lack of a center console look, pretty unique and looks clean.

Nope it's not. It was made by JGee on e30tech. Hes the guy who makes the skid plates for Peerless. I don't use the car for much more than auto-x/ track days.

Thanks for all the compliments guys! Just put the Mtech 1 dead pedal in from Massive. Fits perfect and looks great! It'll be nice to have one again for long road trips.

Massive is awesome! I have an M42 radiator on my car and the mounts he sent me didn't fit this radiator. Well, he had new mounts made and is sending me a set for free!

Thanks man, I'm really happy with the way the exhaust came out. It was all just by eye. If it looked right I tacked it and once everything was tacked, I finished the welds. I wanted a very subtle look that fit the rest of the car, and I'm extremely pleased with the way it came out!

For sure, the fitment looks perfect. I like the angle of the ends to. What's the specs on the full exhaust?

Off the turbo is 2.5" to 3" and a 3" downpipe. After the 3" downpipe it goes into a 3" cherry bomb glass pack and 3" all the way to a y-pipe with 3" inlet and dual 3" outlet then I just cut a 90* bend in half and made them my exhaust tips
